March Favourites 2013

 photo Marchfavourites_zps5621eadf.jpg
I don't know about you guys but March was a crazy busy month for me, it was the good kind of busy, weddings, work, catching up with friends etc. But nonetheless, I found it hard finding time to take a break, let alone catch up with my blog. So for that I apologise, but I thought a fun way to remind you all that I am still around was with some monthly favourites, I have a variety of products to tell you about this month, and I really love all of them! Alright, let's get into the fun stuff...

Drowning in a Sea of Paperwork (A little life update)

Sorry for the lack of contact lately, my life seems to have been taken over by paperwork!

If you have any teacher friends you will know about the dreaded "Reporting Time" and for me that time is now. I feel like the piles of marking are rising around me! But I'm getting through it and holidays are the light at the end of the tunnel!

In the meantime blogging has taken a back seat and I apologise. It may be another week or two until my schedule calms down but after that I will be back in swing of things. Just wanted to write a quick post updating you on where I've been...

The Liebster Award

Recently the lovely Bex from Bex's Blog commented on a post of mine telling me she had nominated me for a Liebster Award. Having never heard of this before I went to her page to check it out. Basically it's a really nice way to share some information about yourself with your readers and acknowledge and share the great things other bloggers are doing, particularly highlighting bloggers who may be a little hidden or might be new to the scene.

Here are the rules:

- List 11 random facts about yourself
- Answer the 11 questions which are given to you by your nominator
- Ask 11 new questions for all the bloggers that you nominate to win the award
- Nominate 9 bloggers with less than 200 followers to win the award
- Go to each of the blogger's pages to let them know about their nomination
- Thank the blogger who nominated you by mentioning them and link it back to their blog on your post

11 Facts about Me:

1. I am the youngest of three girls in my family, and I think my two sisters are pretty awesome.
2. I am a high school teacher and the majority of my students are taller than me, not really ideal...
3. I've never broken a bone (and am touching wood right now that I haven't jinxed myself by writing that down...)

February Empties (And a Challenge Update)

Sorry I have been absent from the blog for a while, this change in season (and probably the germy children I work with) have made me unwell! I finally caved and had a day off today and am already feeling more rested and a little brighter. But for the last week or so have just been laying low and having early nights.

I decided having recently posted an All Time Favourites that a February Favourites would be a little redundant... But I have quite a few empty products that I thought I would share with you and give you my thoughts on. Now the following photo may appear like I am a bit of a Lush junkie but I am actually just really bad at keeping empty products (still getting the hang of this whole blogger thing...) and the only products I do manage to keep seem to be Lush products because I return them to the store, that being said, I do very much like Lush so calling me a Lush junkie wouldn't be an outrageous claim.
